Fibromyalgia did not exist 40 years ago. Conditions like it were known as Epstein-Barr or chronic fatigue syndrome. In 2018, on Dixie Highway in particular, or anywhere in the 40216 area code, there is just too much stress for the human body to endure. If you imagine the human body and the amount of stress it can take, when that point is reached the body is overloaded with physical, chemical, and emotional stress that must go somewhere. This stress over flows into the surrounding muscle tissue. There are approximately 18 stress points on the human body that are common to doctors and patients alike. Some are above and around the shoulder blades, some are on the inside (median) knee, and this is just a general guide, as these trigger points can form in other area. Fibromyalgia can cause unbearable pain as well as fatigue and depression, and are a debilitating problem that has reached epidemic levels in our fast-paced society.

Just a quick look at the 6 lane traffic on Dixie Highway can make anyone a believer in the power of the mind and body to affirm that the environment we live in can contribute to stress, and thus, fibromyalgia. Those who live in the 40216 zip code in Shively know firsthand how much stress we have to endure just leading our daily lives. Don’t believe me?
